What is KVS LDCE

The Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) provides KVS teachers and staff to get a promotion to a higher post. The existing post is called the 'Feeder Post'. For example, a Post Graduate Teacher (PGT) can get a promotion to the post of Vice-Principal, a Trained Graduate Teacher (TGT) and take up the higher role of a PGT, an Assistant Section Officer can get a promotion to the post of Section Officer, and so on. For the post of PGT and TGT, you can apply for one subject only.

Since the LDCE is for a promotional post, the minimum qualifying mark for all posts is 40% (35 % for SC/ST candidates).
